The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry will hold its 24th White Coat Ceremony for the Class of 2026 at the Alys Robinson Stephens Center on Friday, August 9, 2024 at 4:00p.m.

As they begin their clinical years, members of the third-year class, also referred to as D3s, receive white coats that are symbolic of their entry into the dental profession.

The ceremony, which features remarks from the School of Dentistry Alumni Association as well as the recitation of The Dentist’s Pledge honor code, marks the students' dedication to the field of dentistry and their pledge of allegiance to providing the highest standard of patient care. The event also provides an opportunity for faculty and alumni to welcome students into the profession.
